As all of you know, our vision here at Heritage Dental is to partner with patients with the goal of achieving long-term oral and overall health for all those we are honored to serve. In light of the current novel coronavirus/COVID-19 concerns affecting us here in the US and abroad, we wanted to take this opportunity to update you on the precaution we are and have always taken at our office to ensure your (and our) health, safety, and well-being.
*Please know that we always have and continue to employ the most up-to-date infection control procedures at Heritage Dental and our record proves that they work really well!*
Be reassured that the infection control and standard precautions that we always employ are excellent deterrents to COVID-19 and every other virus.
In addition to the routine steps we take, we are being even more vigilant of all the areas in the office. Surfaces in the reception area, front desk
area, consultation area and restroom(s), which would normally be cleaned and disinfected daily, are now being disinfected throughout the day. Hand
sanitizer is readily available in all the areas of the practice for you use.
We also ask you for your help in keeping everyone safe. If you have traveled to China, Japan, South Korea, Italy, Iran, or any other region
affected by the coronavirus, please call our office prior to coming in for your appointment. Washing your hands regularly with soap and water for at
least 20 seconds is of utmost importance.
If you are not feeling well, have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, please contact your physician and call our office to reschedule any
upcoming appointments. Our team (who are also being diligent about their own health) will be available prior to your next visit to make sure you are
well and to answer any questions or concerns. If you are not well, we will help you cancel the current appointment with no fee and make sure that we
have a future appointment scheduled so you can stay on track with your care!
It is in everyone’s best interest to continue your routine healthcare, including dental care, especially yours! During this confusing and
stressful time, staying healthy helps you fight off any challenge! Know that we take our role as your healthcare partner very seriously and are
here to help! For the latest information and guidance, please refer to the CDC’s COVID-19 situation webpage, Department of Public Health website, or
ADA. Stay safe and healthy- we look forward to seeing you soon.
